Description:
In an earlier age, Dante's Divine Comedy provided mankind with a transcendent sense of the universe. Alternatively, in our modern times, Melville's Moby Dick wrested that profound sense of the universal from man. In this broad survey of some of the world's greatest thinkers and writers, the authors argue that the malaise of contemporary society, beset with violence and selfish preoccupation, is the result of man having forgotten the aspirational aspect of life. Because life has become about the persistent acquisition of wealth, power and entertainment, the authors argue we have clearly lost our way to our own humanity.
Book:
Hubert Dreyfus and Sean Dorrance Kelly,All Things Shining: Reading the Western Classics to Find Meaning in a Secular Age.
